. the presiding officer: the objection is heard. the senator from arizona. mr. mccain: mr. president, obviously we regret there's not been able to reach an agreement. i'm especially disappointed that we are unable to consider the ayotte amendment which is an alternative to the sequestration, a flexibility of sequestration which still sooner or later have the same draconian effects on our national security. i also would point out to my colleagues that what we're about to go through is in some respects a charade because we know that the proposal on that side will not succeed with 60 votes. the proposal on this side will not succeed with 60 votes. meanwhile the clock moves on until some time tomorrow night. some of us warned for a long time about the effects of sequestration. and if we want to have a blame game, then i'll take blame. everybody take blame. but isn't it time that we prevented what our military leaders in uniform who have made their careers and their lives serving and sacrificing for this country say would harm and inflict terrible damage on our ability to defend this nation, our inabil

of this nation. not in its vupt viewpoints. the real straight talk from mr. mccain is that congress people are bought and sold by lobbyists all day every day. that's straight talk. if he would have said that to the woman whose son was lost in the aurora massacre, i would have a lot more respect for what he's talking about. at the end the day we have to have a public dialogue that can be more encouraging for your elected officials. if we go the route mccain is talking about, there's no pressure on them to ignore the lobbyists or push back against the lobbyists that are controlling the ways in which they're voting. the only reason we can say there's not going to be a ban is because the lobbyists are controlling too much of what's going on in the capitol. >> let's talk about the cost of doing nothing. just in the last 24 hours, police near dallas have reported that a 3-year-old boy was shot in the head and killed in what appeared to be an accidental death. there's no word yet on who fired the fatal shot but police say that both of the child's patients we parents were at home at the time. in c
